A goiter or goiter is a term for a hormonal disorder that causes enlargement of the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormone is a hormone that regulates the body's metabolism. Lumps due to goitre are usually painless, but some patients report coughing to shortness of breath.
Treatment of goiters depends on the underlying cause of the goitre. The doctor can advise the consumption of drugs, radiotherapy to surgery. If your goitre has been operated on, the doctor has removed your thyroid gland, either partially (subtotal thyroidectomy) or completely (total thyroidectomy). Complete removal of the thyroid gland does not cause recurrence. However, patients need to take long-term medication to stabilize hormone levels in the blood. For that you should ask directly to the doctor who treats you during surgery.
Regarding the consumption of certain foods, adjust again to the cause of the goitre experienced. If the goitre is caused by a lack of iodine intake, then you should increase your iodine consumption to a minimum of 150 micrograms per day, which can be found in foods such as shrimp, cheese, potatoes and use iodized salt for daily purposes.
Complaints of delayed menstruation and hair loss were directly related to surgery. When a gland is removed, a hormonal imbalance occurs which causes the patient to have difficulty sleeping, changes in body weight, menstrual disorders, hair loss, fatigue and an unstable mood.
